In its landscape and tropical surroundings, Barbados is decidedly Caribbean, but the British influence, part of the island's colonial heritage, is strong. As you would expect, the beaches are idyllic and there's a good choice of resorts – from luxury to budget – to fit all tastes and pockets. The west coast, named the Platinum Coast, is home to the capital Bridgetown and many upmarket properties and is generally quieter. Southern beaches are bigger and busier. Inland, you'll find extensive plantations, botannical gardens and museums showcasing the island's colonial past.
